This is one of those wonderful recipes where you get to make something out of almost nothing. There is nothing special in here, you don't even have to use the nuts although I did. You just use ordinary ingredients you probably already have and get something completley different that everyone will like. I didn't even use a can of sweetened condensed milk, I used a copycat recipe for it from this website, worked great. My olny comment is that it is a very gentle chocolate taste. I might try darker chocolate in the future to give it a bit more oomph. The filling is very much like fudge. The whole recipe cost only about 3$ to make I would say, a bargain for what you get out of it.
I made these tonight and they're awful. Something had to have been left out in the ingrdient list. They don't taste like anything. I was looking forward to a treat and all I ended up with is lost money on the ingredients.
I liked them, but I would add more sugar to the crust next time. It seemed a little floury to me and I think it is because 1/2 cup is not enough sugar
